Aside from witnessing the union between the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – the Royal wedding also served as a hub for great fashion moments.

With Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding having an informal atmosphere to it, it was expected that a couple of rules would be bended as compared to Prince William’s 2011 wedding to his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Despite the informal nature of the wedding however, certain rules had to apply and such was the case for the ceremonial dress code of the guests.

Prince Harry and Meghan's dress code was simple and not too restrictive with guests being told to don a "morning suit or lounge suit" for men and a "day dress with a hat" for women.

Let's see who got it right and who missed the mark.

1.For ladies, the dress should go up to the knees.

No showing too much leg at the wedding.

But seriously men are required to wear morning suits or lounge suits or their millitary attire as per the wedding's dress code.
